PATH TO REDEMPTION SEP 2012 - MAR 2013



Path_to_Redemption_Poster_01.jpg


The PATH TO REDEMPTION is a six month long event set up in six separate segment each a month long. You can join in at any time!

Background: We all have that half complete army, the squad you always wanted to expand, the Land Raider you wished you had built, the Deathwing command squad that was left half done because the next new release came on the shelves and so on and so forth. The Librarium Painting Competition has long sought to stimulate you to complete your models and the E Tenebrae Lux built on that with competitive incentives by challenging the other forums.

There are many who did not participate, other’s who failed their vows and even more did not vow as much as they had hoped to. The Path to Redemption will provide our brethren with a gentle incentive to complete your half done projects.

This is simple, low level, insidious and hopefully alluring event that I hope will allow our brothers to complete their old projects and start new ones at a time when the Unforgiven are flexing their collective strength as a legion and await the Lion to awaken!

The event timeline is expected to cover the release of the Dark Vengeance starter set, the first of the FW Horus Heresy Series and hopefully the release of our much awaited Codex and finally slot neatly in to the beginning of the 2013 LPC!!

RULES:
a. This is a modeling and painting competition.
b. There are 6 segments each commencing on the 1st of each month and finishing on the last day of the month.
c. Each segment is completely separate from the other so you can choose which of the six months you wish to enter.
d. There is an incentive to complete each of the six months as explained below in the "What you get for your troubles" section.

WHO MAY ENTER:
1. This is an in house Dark Angels Only competition that anyone can enter
2. Anyone can enter but the models should be Dark Angels or their unforgiven successors.

HOW DO YOU ENTER:
1. Make an oath on this thread at any time between the 1st of the month and the last day of the month with an image of your starting models (in whatever state they are in).
2. List the points value of your oath in order to ensure it is codex legal.
3. Make sure they comply with the above rules
4. When complete modify your original post with the completed project.
5. Your oath must be complete by the last day of the month.
6. You make a separate oath for each of the months you wish to enter.
7. You may make as many oaths as you wish within each of the months but only once you finish the previous oath. However, regardless of the number of oaths you have completed within any given month, they all count as one achievement for the purposes of receiving the pearl on your banner. You must complete all oaths within each month to receive the pearl.

WHAT MODELS CAN YOU ENTER:
You may enter models from any of the following as long as the final completed unit/character/vehicle/terrain/army is Codex Legal

a. Warhammer 40K Dark Angels Codex including all successor chapters. (When the new codex appears your may use the units and characters from that)
b. Forge World Models eligible for dark Angels
c. Battle Fleet Gothic models eligible for dark Angels
d. EPIC 40K/EPIC Armageddon models eligible for Dark Angel
e. Terrain pieces for 40K that have an identifiable Dark Angel affiliation

WHAT STATE CAN YOU ENTER YOUR MODELS:
This is where this event differs greatly form all others. There is no restriction on what degree of work has been already done on your models. For clarity the various possibilities are listed below

1. Start from scratch: Brand new models, ie Dark vengeance starter set.
2. Start from base coat / primer level
3. Partially painted models which require detailing are very much acceptable
4. Fully painted squads/units which you wish to expand are also fine. Eg: You have a five man tactical squad fully painted but wish to expand it to a ten man squad that is entirely fine, post an image of the five man squad and the new squad pieces and then show an image of the ten man squad at the end.
5. A fully painted squad or character that needs basing.
6. Add detail to a fully painted squad/character
7. Add a dedicated transport to a previously completed squad.

So, it really is an event to mainly get you to complete any model, squad, vehicle or army that has been waiting for your love! But, with the release of the new Dark Vengeance starter set and the possible release of the FW Horus heresy series in October and our own dark Angels Codex sometime new projects are also most welcome.

WHAT DO YOU GET FOR COMPLETING YOUR OATHS:
1. You begin on the Path to Redemption in the eyes of our primarch.
2. Banners to show off your achievements
3. Surprise badges to go along with the banners at the end of the six months.
4. Earn a single white pearl for the completion of your oath for each month.
5. Earn a single coveted Black Pearl by earning a total of six white pearls.

LATE ARRIVALS:
If you were unfortunate enough to miss one or more of the earlier months, you still have a chance of earning all six pearls and therefore the much coveted Black Pearl. However this will entail some additional surprise tasks as well which will be revealed as we go along.
 

HOW TO WIN EXTRA WHITE PEARLS


COMPLETE ALL OATHS & A SPECIAL TASK:
Complete an additional oath for each of your empty monthly slots in the standard fashion (DA Codex/FW legal units) and when complete you will be given a specific special task to complete in order to ratify those as being accepted.
Award: You will be awarded a single white pearl for each of your monthly oaths once the special task in completed.

COMPLETE TEN ADDITIONAL OATHS:
This option recognizes the efforts of some of our battle brothers who have completed oath after oath within each month for no particular reward other than their love of our legion.
Award: If you have completed a total of ten additional oath during the whole duration of the event (The initial oath for each month does not count) then you are eligible to be awarded a SINGLE White Pearl to be used to fill up any slot in your banner, past or future. You  can only earn a maximum of a single white pearl for this category regardless of the number of additional oaths you make.
Example: If you had vowed 3 additional vows in after completing your September oath and did so again in October and December and then in January made a single additional vow, you will receive one white pearl each for the months of September through January for a total of five white pearls. You will also in addition receive a sixth white pearl as you had made a total of 10 additional vows leaving you free in February.

CHAPTER FLEET ASSETS: (Battle Fleet Gothic):
This is an incentive to those admirals who wish to participate in this event. You may make an oath of any BFG legal Dark Angel fleet assets as a normal oath.
Award: If you complete a sum total of 1000 points worth of Fleet Assets (BFG) during the duration of the event, then you will be eligible for an additional White Pearl. You  can only earn a maximum of a single white pearl for this category regardless of the points size of the fleet assets..
Example: If you pledge a Battlebarge for December and a Battlebarge and Strike Cruiser for January, you will received one white pearl each for the months of December and January and a third white pearl for reaching 1000 points.

STRATEGIC WARFARE: (EPIC Armageddon) :
This is an incentive to those Lord Commander with the love of Strategic Warfare who wish to participate in this event. You may make an oath of any EPIC Armageddon legal Dark Angel units/assets as a normal oath.
Award: If you complete a sum total of 1000 points worth of Strategic Units (EPIC Armageddon) during the duration of the event, then you will be eligible for an additional White Pearl. You  can only earn a maximum of a single white pearl for this category regardless of the points size of the strategic assets.
Example: If you pledge a command detachment for December up to 500 points with transports and attachments and a tactical detachment and a terminator detachment for January, you will received one white pearl each for the months of December and January and a third white pearl for reaching 1000 points.

THE GREAT CRUSADE (FW Betrayal Crusade Army List):
This is your chance to delve in to the realms of the 30th millennium and the Dark Angels Legion. You may make an oath consisting of any legal unit in the Space Marine Legion Crusade Army List described in FW’s Betrayal Book. Models must be painted in legion colours and period equipment.
Award: Recognizing the cost and accessibility of FW’s heresy Era models, this will reward the participant with an additional White Pearl for every full strength squad, squadron or single vehicle completed in legion colours and period wargear. This will be in addition to the white pearl received for the month for completing the same squad. A maximum of three additional white pearls may be earned in this manner all of which can be awarded in the same month or in different months depending on when the participant completed them.
Example: If you complete a 10 man assault squad in December using FW miniatures and a 5 man Cataphract Terminator Squad also in December, both in legion colours and markings you will receive one white pearl for the December oath of two units but also receive two white pearls one for each HH era unit. If you do the same in January you will receive another white pearl for January but only one more white pearl for completing a HH era unit as you can only ever earn a maximum of three additional white pearls in this manner.

BROTHERHOOD OF ANGELS:
This is an opportunity to develop and display your own unforgiven chapter. You must make an oath consisting of a single squad or character in your DIY chapter coours which will earn you a single white pearl. However if you submit a fully developed chapter history similar to the standards displayed in the Brotherhood of Angels thread to an acceptable standard (by the Inner Circle) then that effort will net you TWO EXTRA White Pearls to use as you wish! If you accomplish this you will in addition earn the right to wear the Chaptermaster banner.

PARTICIPATION IN THE LIBRARIUM PAINTING CHALLENGE 2013:
The simple expediency of making your oaths in the LPC2013 at the same time you make your oaths for the PtR will earn you an additional White Pearl. This is in particular important especially for any new recruits who have a few empty sockets to fill We have just two months in which to earn all your six White pearls.

NOVO CODICIUM ANGELES TENEBRAE:
Completing an oath that consists of one of the new units listed in the Codex Dark Angels will earn you an additional White Pearl. To receive this the unit must be a full strength unit (Not a combat squad etc). The units that would earn you such an additional white pearls are as follows:
Deathwing Command Squad; Deathwing Knights Squad; Ravenwing Command Squadron Ravenwing Black Knights Squadron; Ravenwing landspeeder vengeance; Ravenwing Landspeeder Dark Shroud; Ravenwing dark talon; Ravenwing Nephilim Jet Fighter. You will receive one White pearl for making the oath and one additional white pearl for each of the above units you complete.



+ + + BY SUCH STRATEGEMS SHALL OUR BATTLE BROTHERS WALK THE PATH TO GLORY + + +



Pathways to Redemption Completion Banners and Medallions
By now the majority of you have received quite a few White Pearls with some even gaining the coveted number of six already. As there are now many ways to receive more than one white pearl and in order to simplify matters, listed below are six banners depicting the total numbers of white pearls received. wear them with pride as appropriate to your achievement.

I, Pistorius, wish to rectify my non-participation with a vow to paint one 10-man tactical squad for my Griffin Lords successors during the month of September. These models have recently been stripped of paint, and some need re-assembly.

TSG, can I vow parts of a Thunderhawk, such as this month I plan on completing all the heavy bolters, missiles and undercarriage for it, next month I would do something like the turbolaser and canopy etc.?

If not I'll aim at small unfinished units, no worries either way

There's always someone who pushes the boundaries! :P I don't think I can alow a part of a kit to be vowed... as one of the rules states that you must vow a code/FW/BFG/EPIC legal unit... What I wouldd o if I were you would be to vow something else and continue with the Thunderhawk ...and vow that as a half or three quarters complete model to be finished in a later months. :)

I, the Great and Powerful Sarducci, He Who Makes Mere Mortals Tremble, Lord of the Northern Marches, Warden of the Cinque Ports, and all around humble dude, do hereby vow for the month of September to paint a (Successor) Deathwing Squad of 250 points including a chainfist and assault cannon from the Dark Vengeance set.

Please note. I am a computer idiot, and can't get pictures onto posts. Here are links.

http://www.flickr.co...157631499476440

These are my successor chapter, the Purple Dragoons. This is my goal.

http://www.flickr.co...157631499476440

Here is my starting point. I have found it is easier for me to paint individual parts and then assemble them.

http://www.flickr.co...157631499476440

Finished the smaller pieces a few days ago.

http://www.flickr.co...157631499476440

Finished the main Terminator bodies. Still need to seal and assemble.

http://www.flickr.co...157631499476440

The bases. Nothing special. Should be done in a day or two.

http://www.flickr.co...157631499476440

The finished front.

http://www.flickr.co...157631499476440

The finished back.

Vow Complete.

1. This is an in house Dark Angels Only competition
2. Anyone can enter but the models should be dark Angels or their unforgiven successors.


Argh! No Fallen then. Think, Archangel, think. *paces around room in cellblock 42*

There's got to be a way. Preheresy? If I had enough older bits to lay my hands on or Forgeworld models maybe. But I don't and trying to get some now and delivered quickly wastes too much time this month. I'm still waiting for my Dark Vengeance boxes in the mail. Think man! Consecrators? Why couldn't they have a winged sword symbol for a chapter icon? Rrrrgh!

*starts smiling slowly* Waitaminute...

DEATHWING!

Oh, but before Shadow Guard thinks he has THIS Fallen painting bone coloured models... oh yes, I remember. There was a time before the Deathwing christened their armour in white. Before the tale of Cloud Runner, Lame Bear, and the other honored Terminators who fought with them against their homeworld's infestation of Genestealers. They wore BLACK!

[UPDATE]

Forgive me, Brothers.

I have stumbled upon my path to redemption. I'd say "fallen", but the irony for me just isn't funny right now.

My laptop has died completely, it's machine spirit has fled. My models sit half-done, and I have no way to post their picture when completed. I'm posting this from my work and cannot upload files from here.

I will be back online as soon as I am able, so keep those Blades of Reason sharp.

Good journey to you all!

Cheers,

Cheers,



Fallen are fine Archangel - relax! :)

The thing is the entry should be a legal choice from the DA codex. Organise your entries accordingly and the color of the minis is your call! The aim is to paint whatever you want based on the DA codex. The story behind your force, its name and its paint scheme is up to you! So you really can relax and start painting your heretics all you like! :D
